Signs on the GOR

New rubber on the bike, nice day, took half of it off to go for a ride to the coast. Apologies to the local guys, it was a spur of the moment thing. 430km, 1st ride of the new season I guess.
 
More signs, no pubs unlike this blog > http://wotid.com/blog/?p=13

Lot’s of pictures follow
 
All Images can be clicked for a big one.
 
A lot have probably seen this sign, visitor to the GOR or not.

Travel times. I went to Skenes Ck, then inland for 30km over the Otway Ranges. Turn around at the West Barwon Reservoir as it flattens and straightens out, head back to the coast and fuel up at Apollo Bay.

Some international tourists are a cause of accidents. They pull out of parking areas and promptly drive on the wrong side of the road.

It’s a prick of a road for overtaking.

  1. YO, you still ride? and have this bike?
    I found your website because I needed workplace manuals, wich I got now.

    But these rides plus pics are awesome. I see its 2008 so you’re probably eaten by wombats.
    If not, make more of these pls, it looks great.

    I have the same bike in black and blue/white colors, since 2007.

    Ive been to Australia for 5 months in 2015, but I should have brought my bike with me:(

    Great roads and scenery

  3. Yeah, still riding / riding again. I sold the GSXR a few years ago. Now I’m on a BMW S1000XR.

    Steve.
